supporters to forward an explanation of the obama plan to friends. the president is planning rallies in key states. can this help the white house and because of the incredible system that they had set up during the campaign, does this give them an advantage, admiral? >> i think it is something mr. obama learned a lesson about. i think he went to washington and somewhat forgot he had been elected almost i would say by a lot of moderate republicans and he had the people power behind him and i think he was somewhat caught up. as he once said, he couldn't change washington from the inside and i think sometimes reminding people what's at stake is not a bad tactic. all of that said, what i really do believe most is he has to keep in mind 47% of the people did vote for mr. romney and i think what he has to come across at is a very pragmatic individual. that's what americans, i tell you, in pennsylvania that's what we want is a pragmatic approach. step aside from the ideology. when 60% of the budget has to do with entitlements, you know it has to be addressed. then on the other hand, when you h

inviting me. stuart: do you know of any plan from president obama or any leading democrat that really does reform entitlements? >> certainly the white house has not offered any glimpse into any thinking in that regard. i haven't heard or seen anything from the senate side in that regard either. there are some democrats who have talked about entitlement reform, like on the bowles simpson commission, but they seemed to have been pretty well relegated to -- stuart: this is my opinion that the president may pay lip service in terms of doing something about entitlements but will not go through with real reform. i think he will just simply delay any change to the basic entitlement system and just go on borrowing the money to pay for it. again, this is a very -- this is an opinion on my part. what do you say? >> well, it seems that entitlement reform has been genuine third rail in american politics. nobody wants to talk seriously about it in the white house. it's hard to find people who want to talk about it in more than generalities in either chamber. and this spending machine is continuing and
